Infinity meridian flexibility and strength training is a combination of hatha yoga, traditional Chinese medicine, resistance training, and energetic healing. The effect on the body is similar to that of Acupuncture. Blocked meridians become clear resulting in increased movement of qi energy. Improving the movement of qi leads to better health and wellbeing.

Resistance training engages the mind, reestablishing the connection between the brain and the muscles. By actively resisting the stretch, you significantly decrease your risk of overstretching and injury. Muscles that may have “turned off” due to misuse/lack of use can recover some of their original strength.

Inspiration for Infinity Bodywork came from Resistance Flexibility and Strength Training (RFST), Resistance Stretching, and Meridian Flexibility System (MFS) all created by Bob Cooley. After training with Bob, Janet also trained with Elite trainers Anne Tierney and Steve Sierra who own Innovative Body Solutions. Anne and Steve were Elite trainers for Bob Cooley and have since founded their own company and the Ki-Hara Method.

Infinity’s training exercises are distinctive in that they are not “static.” The key is pandiculation or, more simply put, exercising with resistance. The element of resistance in the exercises activates your brain and elicits a safer, deeper, long-lasting effect.

In static exercises, signals are sent from your muscles to the reflex centers. By using resistance in an exercise you send signals that pass through your reflex centers and end in the motor cortex of your brain. Your muscles begin to receive and respond to messages from the motor cortex and start to correct for overworked or underworked dysfunctional muscle patterns.

Think about the computer. When the server cannot connect to a program it can try to circumvent it by activating other systems and programs. But without your IT guy, you may not even notice that the computer is essentially skipping over the error to try and accomplish what you have asked it to do. The same is true for your muscles. If one muscle has become overworked it may be compensating for another group of muscles that have “turned off.” By engaging the brain while working the muscles you can reestablish the lost connection and address the real problem.

5 Resistance Training Techniques for Beginners

Tips and tricks for introducing regular stretching exercises to your workout. Resistance exercises wake up the brain-muscle connections to tap into our innate flexibility and strength. All of us, knowingly or unknowingly, use our muscles in specific patterns. This results in some muscles becoming overworked and some under worked or injured. Resistance exercises find and correct unhealthy muscle patterns by engaging the brain-muscle connection.
